Morris Cerullo is the founder of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism.  Claiming to be an apostle and prophet to the nations, Cerullo has been preying on gullible Christians for over 50 years.

Cerullo’s website is a cornucopia of wild claims and self aggrandizement. Humble he is not.

From his website;

Many honors have been bestowed upon Morris Cerullo – including honorary doctorates of divinity and humanities – by academic leaders, spiritual leaders and presidents of nations, in recognition of his achievements and contributions to global evangelization.

Few ministers have had such an impact on the destiny of the nations of the world.

Not only does God speak to him but his prophetic annunciations come with a special anointing of God’s Presence.

He received a divine, supernatural call from God to preach at the age of fifteen when God took him into the heavens and revealed Himself to him by a supernatural vision.


Honored by church and world leaders, impacts the destiny of nations, prophetic annunciations with a special anointing of Gods presence (whatever that means) and not just called by God to preach but actually called and taken to heaven to meet with Jesus face to face!

Luke 6:26
Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

What a guy! I mean most of us have to be satisfied with the regular old “call of God” on our lives. This guy got the call and had face to face meeting with the Head Honcho Himself. He must really be special! At least that’s what he wants you to think.

And how about that impacts “destiny of nations” claim. Again from his website;

Beginning in 1999, Morris pioneered new spiritual territory in many nations considered closed to the Gospel, making spiritual history in the Middle East! More than 22,000 Nationals from eleven Middle East countries received spiritual breakthroughs that enabled them to reach their countries in a demonstration of God’s power. The eleven countries were; Saudi Arabia, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Cyprus, Jordan, Turkey, Israel, Lebanon, Qatar and Bahrain

Well, I’m sure glad he had such an impact on those Middle East countries otherwise those Muslims over there might really be mad at us.

And how about all those new Christian churches opening up in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Lebanon!  Oops, sorry, those Muslim nations still don’t allow any display of Christianity.

Tell me again what this guy has actually accomplished.

In recent years Cerullo has faced lawsuits by former employees, investigations by the U.S. Postal Service and U.S. Customs, been banned from television in Great Britain, and has built a net worth estimated to be 100 million dollars.

Like most of these frauds and con men, Cerullo has done quite well for himself fleecing God’s people out of their money. He reportedly lives in a 12,000 square foot mansion in the exclusive Rancho Sante Fe community of San Diego and owns a Gulfstream G4 private jet with two full time pilots as well as several luxury automobiles.

Yes sir, that’s the crucified life alright!

Math 6:24 -26
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

What brought this guy to my attention was the ads he’s running for his latest con:

This first ever seminar is being held at the exclusive Gaylord Texan resort in suburban Grapevine Texas and will include a lineup of 26 special guest speakers as well as 8 special guest musicians!

The guest speakers are a veritable Who’s Who of the apostate church. For only $125 (including breakfast) you’ll get to hear;

False prophets like
Rick Joyner, Dutch Sheets, John Kilpatrick, and Cindy Jacobs
False teachers like
Tommy Tenny,  Steve Hill, Billy Joe Daugherty, and Ted Haggard

Word Of Faith con men like
Kenneth Copeland, John Avanzini, and Mike Murdock

Plus a whole bunch more that you’ve probably never heard of.

Now I’m not sure when these special guests are going to be able to speak because according to Cerullo;


You see, Morris Cerullo is the only person in the world that God can entrust this information to, and if we don’t get to this seminar we won’t have any way to know how to pray.

Do you see what this is?

1John 2:18
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

When you think of the anti-christ I’m sure that like most people you think of the evil end time ruler that is to come, but John says there are many anti-christs. How can that be?

Anti-Christ doesn’t mean opposite of Christ, it means in place of Christ.

Any person who puts himself in place of Christ in your life is operating in the spirit of anti-christ. And as John said there are many of them already in the world!

Morris Cerullo claims to have special knowledge from God. He claims to have had special visitations from God. He claims to have had special visions from God. Morris Cerullo wants you to think that he is on a higher level of spirituality than you.  This is the very essence of the anti Christ spirit.

1John 2:27
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

If you are born of the Spirit of God, John says you have no need that any man should teach you. You already have all the anointing you’re ever gong to need.

You are perfectly capable of hearing from and obeying God yourself! You don’t need Morris Cerullo or any of these other jokers!

Would you like a seminar on prayer? Well, here it is.

Luke 11:1-4
And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Give us day by day our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

There you go. The disciples asked Jesus how to pray and he told them. And he didn’t charge them $125 and it didn’t take a 6 day seminar.

I promise you there is more truth in those 4 verses than will be “released” in all six days of Morris Cerullos “God anointed series”

I appeal to you by the spirit of the living God to turn from these anti-christ false teachers. Reject them and open the bible for yourself. You can hear from God. You can be led by God. Let the Holy Spirit be your teacher.  

Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
